The Bouncing Souls are, perhaps, one of the most aptly named bands that I’ve done a Recommended Listening for all day. When I listen to The Bouncing Souls, I get this exuberant feeling. I just want to move, and smile, and laugh. It’s pretty awesome.
The Bouncing Souls got together in New Jersey, in 1987. They have released nine studio albums (one of which was a split with Anti-Flag), two live albums, and multiple EPs. They reintroduced the fast, happy feeling into east coast punk rock, and have garnered wide-spread respect for their contributions to the genre.
